My son has a 2000 Chrysler LHS, recently he had to have the rack and pinion replaced. Not even a week later, power steering fluid began to leak terribly. We took it back to the shop and they informed us that the solenoid for the speed proportional steering was leaking. We were, also, informed that they had taken the solenoid from the old rack and pinion and used it because that part is not made anymore. If this is true and that part cannot be replaced, can it be bypassed so the car is drive-able?
